    Windows can't remember how to connect on wifi


    Most of the time when I start my system, I have to go through the step of troubleshooting connection problems. Why can't the system remember how to connect? I always use the same WiFi connection, so as soon as I click the Troubleshoot Problems item over the icon in the system tray, the connection is made. What gives?

    It depends on if you are using different Hotspots or not. If problems with your personal hotspot, there is a tool on bleepingcomputor.com that may fix it. Look in the downloads for "Farbar".

    I am always using my personal hotspot. I just updated the driver for the network adapter, so we'll see if that helps. Thanks.
